Dolly Parton And Carol Burnett 'No One Picks Like A Nashville Picker Picks'

No one picks like a Nashville picker picks. No one. In a hilarious clip, Dolly Parton teamed up with Carol Burnett for a skit, ‘No One Picks Like a Nashville Picker Picks.’ This is one entertaining performance! It begins with Carol telling Dolly, “No one picks like a Nashville picker picks” and it snowballs into a hilarious musical number that is a treat for music and comedy lovers alike.


Now for those who don’t know what a picker is, it is a person who plays a plucked instrument, especially a guitar, banjo, or mandolin and it was quite the talent in the 70’s. In fact, this performance was aired in 1979 on CBS. It was recorded on the Grand Ol’ Opry stage. The video has been shared thousands of times and has gone viral with 1,392,793 views and counting!

Not only do the unlikely and hilarious pair have a lot of fun performing together, they also have a few surprises in store for the audience, including a young boy named Louis. In fact, Carol thought she was being sweet on this little boy who just wanted to try picking. But, when Louis gets the banjo, it becomes apparent, he is one of the best pickers in Nashville despite his age. Carol tells him to keep her banjo.

The skit goes on to create a song where the most talent pickers in Nashville pick to the made up words of:

You sing the words, Carol, and…
I’ll pick the licks
No one picks like a Nashville Picker, like a Nashville Picker picks

We won't spoil the rest of the video for you, but the end of the performance turns into a moment that could only happen at the Grand Ole Opry.

Share this fun-filled, surprising and funny musical duet with your family and friends!
